Earn More Money While Creating Better Artwork
As you already know, in order to completely conceal an existing tattoo, cover-ups usually require the use of darker, heavily pigmented inks. This especially applies to tattoos that contain a lot of black ink, which the majority of tattoos do. No matter how talented a cover-up tattoo artist is, they still need to use twice or triple the amount of ink to ensure no traces of the original tattoo come through. This can pose a problem for clients who are interested in replacing their old artwork with a more colorful tattoo or a piece with lighter colors.
For example, if someone wanted to get a cover-up on a heavily saturated black tribal tattoo, the tattoo artists wouldn’t have many design options other than covering it with a large solid black shape. By completely removing the ink or significantly fading it with laser tattoo removal, the client and tattoo artist will be presented with a completely clean slate, allowing for more flexibility and creativity with the new tattoo. Luckily, black ink is the easiest ink pigment for most lasers to remove.
Another example is how lightening a tattoo can prepare a cleaner canvas for a tattoo artist to apply a cover-up by removing certain design aspects. Say, for example, there’s a tattoo of a rose with an ex-lover’s name in the middle. The client may love the rose but doesn’t want her ex-boyfriend’s name permanently etched on her skin. Laser tattoo removal has the capability of fading specific parts of a tattoo, like text, allowing the artist to incorporate new elements into the existing tattoo while still preserving the original artwork. Undergoing a few laser tattoo removal treatments to lighten or remove certain sections of a tattoo will make reworking the design much easier for a tattoo artist.
